This is intentional by CVS. So here's the scenario

Person1 & Person2 working on file1.c and hence have
a copy of the file in their respective sandbox.

Person1 checks-in file1.c, updating the repository copy.
Person2 checks in file1.c, CVS complains "Your file is 
out of date" (or the like).

Person2 has to do a "cvs up" first to get Person1's changes
in his sandbox copy; then Person2 can commit.

Without this check, Person2 will overwrite Person1's changes.
